    Default Would you buy a car with no service history ?

    Just been to see a 2002 vectra GSI. Looks to be in awesome condition however the dealer hasnt got any of the documents for it. Obviously obtaining a new V5 is easy enough for the dealer. Im just a tad concerned about lack of service history. Its a 3.2l petrol GSI with 48k on the clock for £5600. My question is would you risk it ? What's the worst case scenario if the car hasn't been regularly serviced aside from resale value ?

    Ask to see the log book, and contact the last registered owner, see if he has any documents, and if not why not.

    Just an idea.

    Also see if you can find the garage that sold it new, chances are they have serviced it at some point. No service history is also a great point to haggle with!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Can the dealer confirm where its come from ect ? Also how many owners has the vehicle had on the log book.Several owners isnt a problem but just make sure you check as much as you can.
